@clhendricksbc Great! Seems a lot of the action will be on Twitter so I'll be there, but would like to see more of hit on Masto. See ya around.

@ton At first I didn't think I would have time for it. But after seeing the kinds of ideas that are being thrown around in the course materials and twitter livechat I'm going to make an effort to attend live.

@danwchan Work has been crazy the past few days and have a special faculty meeting on Sunday. Yes, Sunday! so I'm falling behind. But, there can be too much emphasis on completion on MOOCs. Take what you can get. Hope to jump back in later next week.

Scholar Social

A Mastodon instance for academics

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.

We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"A Mastodon profile you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.

Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @socrates@scholar.social and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
